How would you feel about a smart trouser suit that you could wear afterwards as separates? With heeled courts, a beautiful buttonhole and maybe something pretty in your hair?

sounds lovely! i usually wear jeans , striped tops , pretty blouses that kind of thing all quite casual so obviously dont want to go in jeans ! dont think i would wear trouser suit much afterwards really.
the only dress i have is a joules one with a duck pattern , so i dont suppose that would be any good. unless i went for the quirky look with faux fur or something, that would be wrong...right?

I would wear a dress, with a lovely jacket, good accessories the duck one could work - do you have a link?

Another option would be if you are having any night out after it then whatever you wear could be worn again?

Too glam?

I like this too.

Ooh I love that Zara dress, Tapsel and that would do nicely for the Christmas season too, depending when the OP's mum is getting married.

Numberlock don't Zara have some lovely dresses! They have one that is a sequin print, lovely colour too, here <tries not to get carried away, fails>

You're really not helping are you, Tapsel, wink I'm trying not to spend at the moment.

But I do have a lovely Christmas party to attend...

See, I am doing you a favour really, buy now so you are not harassed, and have to rush to find something - it will probably save you money in the end, you won't be running round the shops tempted to buy other stuff...<evil grin>

You're a true friend, Tapsel, and I'm sure you'll be there to support me when the credit card statement arrives too. grin

tapsel , here is my duck dress
it says tunic dress but its a dress on me , i am short !

A brightly coloured coat in red or bright blue might help lift your dress (which is nice but not sure it is quite right for a celebration, just think you need more colour but if you feel good in it then go for it.)

Yumi is good for dresses (and pretty blouses/tunics) that suit petite people and Dorothy Perkins have some great dresses just now that are not expensive but maybe would work. What is your figure like thriftychic? What shoes would you wear?

What's you mum wearing? If she's dressing smart casually, you don't want to out glam her so the duck dress may be fine...?

thriftychic Tue 02-Oct-12 21:32:27

ah yes, yumi, will have a look. no idea re shoes all i have at the mo is some ankle boots (heeled) so probably have to buy some .
dont know what my mum will be wearing , i know it wont be a traditional wedding dress or anything but she always dresses up so probably a bright coloured dress and heels .
